"This week, we had an incredible miracle! Last week was incredibly difficult for both of us. We worked really hard but we weren't seeing the results. All of our appointments kept canceling, we contacted and contacted, and hadn't met a single person who was willing to listen. By the time Sunday came, we were both pretty down and dedicated our fast to asking The Lord to give us just one opportunity to share the gospel with someone. Then, Sunday night we contacted a woman who invited us in less than a minute after we started talking to her. 15 minutes later, she asked us if we wanted to meet her sister, who lives down the road. We went then and there to meet her sister, and taught them both! They invited us back the very next day, and when we arrived, we were surprised to find that they had invited three more family members to come and listen to what we had to say! They then asked if we could fix two lessons every week where they could all five come and learn about the gospel. We have been blessed beyond belief and we are so incredibly thankful for this opportunity to be here with them!
So that's our exciting story for the week! I love you all so much!
Another beautiful picture of our view
And last, but not least...
"A picture from a field trip to Mont-Dore when our whole district ended up stuck on the other side of the tribe, who shut down the only road that could get us back home after a district meeting. (They own the road.)"
I asked for further explanation of what shutting down the road means and she gave me further details:
"The tribe was angry at the French government, so they lit big piles of brush on fire in the road and the gendarmes (police) had to go calm them down. They just shut down the road for a while after the fires were cleared to make sure it was safe. It really was just an inconvenience for us. Ha!"
